I Have Desired To Go by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844 - 1889).


All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/i-have-desired-to-go-by-gerard-manley-hopkins/
Gerard Manley Hopkins SJ was an English poet and Jesuit priest, whose posthumous fame established him among the leading Victorian poets. His manipulation of prosody (particularly his concept of sprung rhythm and use of imagery) established him as an innovative writer of verse. Two of his major themes were nature and religion.
( Wikipedia)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This Poem was suggested by Algy Pug.
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
I Have Desired To Go by Gerard Manley Hopkins, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
I HAVE desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail,
And a few lilies blow.

And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.

At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: desired_hopkins_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. desired_hopkins_klh_128kb.mp3 )


ID3 tags (Version 2.30): ID Tags are completed during Cataloging

Thank you Kate, there is a background noise for the first half of your file, then it clears up. Can you add the 5 seconds of ending silence please?
